Yoga of Inner Discovery with Stefania
At the center of every human being, there is a being free, vast aware, all-knowing, who awaits our discovery and must become the effective center of our being. Thus, the first condition is to need something other than the present world and human conditions. And to reach there, one has to descend deep down in oneself to find out what one is behind all these racial, hereditary, social, moral, and cultural appearances; basically, what one truly is. For there is a starting-point: when you have found within yourself the light that never wavers, the presence that can guide you with certitude; then you become aware that constantly, in everything that happens, there is something to be learned, and that in the present state of matter, there is always a progress to be made.
Shamanism of every culture believes that you may understand who you are in this world, when you are ready to accept who you are in other worlds. This yoga of self-discovery is based on this understanding and proposes an exploration of our true self by using the three main stages of shamanism: the first stage is connected with your current intent and the expression of its energy; the second stage represents the energy that needs to be released, which often corresponds to limits, blocks, imbalances or great unexpressed potential; in the third stage you have the opportunity to receive and surrender to whatever comes to you.
We thus focus on areas of transformation, identifying and promoting intentions and what truly motivates each person, in an environment based on safety and respect. This provides a valuable learning and life experience, which can be precious in developing your own guidance and as a support in your journey, giving sound foundations for exploring deep dynamics, healing blocks and restoring fragmented parts.
To achieve such a deep exploration of our being, we also use techniques and exercises from the psychosyntesis and a number of other practices of self-discovery. In particular, the psychosynthesis is an approach to human psychology that expands the boundaries of the field by identifying a deeper center of identity. It considers each individual unique in terms of purpose in life and places value on the exploration of human potential. The approach combines spiritual development with psychological healing by including the life journey of an individual or their unique path to self-realization.
This program is aimed at beginning seekers, but can also be a special experience for those who already have a solid connection with their innermost center. Participants will have the opportunity to attend the first 4 weeks only or complete the full 8 weeks course; it will not be possible to attend only individual classes or join the group after the first session. The cost of this course is Rs. 1000 / month, 50 % discount for Auroville volounteers, Aurovilians and New Comers.

She worked as a freelance in various educational institutions in Italy (hospitals, schools and informal education centers), offering counseling, workshop and training. As a private therapist, she worked with children with developmental delays and behavioral and psychological difficulties. Her search for spiritual growth brought her to deepen her knowledge in philosophy, psychology and techniques for spiritual growth (Psychosyntesis, Indian psychology, Awareness Through the Body, Bach flowers remedy, life coaching, etc). The path of Integral yoga brought her to finally move to Auroville in 2007 where she mainly worked as Awareness Through the Body practitioner and as counselor and therapist in different Auroville schools.
